Two Flexco Products Garner Sanitation Nominations During IBIE 2019 Best in Baking Program

Novitool® Aero® Splice Press receives Top Honors

Last month, two Flexco products were recognized for excellence in sanitation at The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE). The Novitool® Aero® Splice Press received Top Honors for Sanitation in the 2019 BEST in Baking Program, while the FGP Food Grade Precleaner was a qualifier.

Launched in 2010, the BEST in Baking was originally developed to recognize suppliers who demonstrated a commitment to sustainability. This year’s IBIE BEST in Baking program was expanded to recognize both suppliers and bakers who demonstrated excellence in the industry’s most paramount topics including sanitation, product innovation, and workforce development. This prestigious program demonstrates IBIE’s commitment to recognizing leadership within the industry and its dedication to supporting the growth and wellbeing of talented suppliers and bakers around the world.

The Novitool Aero Splice Press revolutionizes endless splicing in baking applications with 8-12 minute splice times. It is ideal for splicing the lightweight plied urethane and other thermoplastic belting found in the baking industry. The Aero press received Top Honors in sanitation thanks to its forced-air cooling, which eliminate potential contamination from water tanks and makes it portable and easy to set up for onsite splicing.

The FGP Food Grade Precleaner removes dough, flour, oils, frosting, and other sticky materials from belts. It is made from FDA-approved materials and is USDA-certified with cleaner blades that are available in blue, white, dual durometer metal detectable blue, and metal detectable blue. The FGP is easy to install and maintain and disassembles in a snap for regular cleaning, rinsing, and sanitation, which made it a qualifier for this year’s BEST in Baking Program.
